[syslog-ng]Backslash-escaped quotes in message strings

When a single (') or double (") quote appears in a syslog message,
this quote gets escaped with a backslash by syslog-ng, which results
in pretty ugly output, different from what the standard Linux
sysklogd does (this doesn't change the message).

Can this be considered a bug (or is it a feature)?
